Comment(by PaulFertser):

 Lindi, afaict the intent of power_was_on is to keep information about
 power state during suspend (while GPS is actually unpowered). So
 power_was_on is correct here but ps_pwron_set should be able to power on
 the GPS regardless of its state (special care should be taken to not
 enable regulator twice, because regulators include reference counting).
 Sent to the ML is a tested patch that should solve the problem.
